Keyology Standardized Operating Procedures
New York State Real Property Law section 442-h requires, in part, that real estate brokers “institute
standardized operating procedures for the prerequisites prospective homebuyers must meet prior to
receiving any services.” Specifically, whether prospective clients shall show identification; whether an
exclusive broker agreement is required; and whether pre-approval for a mortgage loan is required.
Keyology Group LLC provides real estate consultation in regards to market conditions, valuation
of property, preparation for purchase of real estate, among other things. Because many of these
services are not fee or commission based, they can and, many times, do occur informally, before
or without actively purchasing real property. Therefore, Keyology’s standard procedures are that
prospective clients shall not need to show identification, exclusive broker agreements are not
required until when/if a customer chooses to become a client, and pre-approval for a mortgage is
not required until when/if a customer needs it to view or offer on real property.
